Ind vs NZ 2nd T20
Ind vs NZ 2nd T20 is making a buzz online. On Sunday, India and New Zealand will face off in the second game of the three-match T20I series. Due to persistent rain, the first T20I in Wellington was abandoned without a ball bowled. At Mount Maunganui, teams and fans are hoping for better weather.
With the game postponed at Wellington's Sky Stadium, both teams will be looking to take the lead in what is now officially a two-match series. The team that triumphs at Mount Maunganui has a chance of winning the series in Twenty20 match 3 at Napier, but the team that loses is only playing to tie the series - there will be no chance for them after a loss continues to be won on Sunday.
With reports of a split captaincy making the rounds, selectors will be eager to see how this new-look India fares under Hardik Pandya. Time permitting, Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan are very likely to lead the Indian batsman, while Sanju Samson could come in as No. 3.
Meanwhile, New Zealand hopes to exorcise the demons of the past T20 World Cup, with Kane Williamson looking to get back into shape after his recent poor run in T20Is, which resulted in him being let go by Sunrisers Hyderabad. India must also be wary of the Black Caps' opening combination with Finn Allen and Devon Conway, who have the tools to take down any bowling attack worldwide.
Led by Hardik Pandya, India is reportedly looking to give playing time to a young starting XI in the second of three T20I games against New Zealand at Mount Maunganui.
After the opener fails in Wellington, India is still expected to introduce many new faces from the lineup that appeared in the recently concluded T20 World Cup.
Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan, and Sanju Samson weren't in India's T20 World Cup squad but are expected to be the first-choice batsmen to form India's top order. With Gill and Kishan forming a left-right opening combo, Samson should be India's number three. Rishabh Pant could also have a chance in the top order with doubts over his batting role in the Indian lineup.
